making a gift box envelope for those bulky punch art cards

Pin It
Hi again so soon ! I had an email from a lady called Cindy...Hi Cindy! asking me for some ideas as to how she could give her fuchsia card she had just made from my instructions without getting it squashed in a regular envelope...soooo i came up with this gift box envelope which i think will work well :) I wouldn't send this through the post though! this was an idea that you could use without taping your card directly to the present. I used a regular A4 size card in stampin up craft. On the horizontal i scored it at 2', 3', 71/2' and 81/2' and on the vertical i scored it 1' flipped it and score the opposite side at 1'. Cut each mark in to the 1' score on both sides of the vertical. the larger flat is the base of the box, glue those flaps closed. The smaller flat is to be left un glued so you can open it properly.....just tie this with a pretty ribbon to keep it closed! this pattern will help plus watch the video! :) hope this has helped. all these products bar the score pal can be purchased through me. Or if you live in the Nambucca Valley area and would like to do this as a workshop please contact me.
Blessings to you
and a last thought
Give as freely as you have received!
